The news of the death of Dr. Jerome
Bruce, a native of NewDerry who had
made Florida his home, was received
in Newberry with general sorrow. Dr.
Bruce was highly esteemed by those of
his native county whose pleasure it
was to know him.
THE NEGRO SCARE.
The full synopsis of the report of
the- county superintendent of educa
tion, published in The Herald and
News today, is a conclusive answer
to the argument which has been ad
vanced by politicians against compul
sory education, to the effect that it
will force the negroes to school.
A careful study of this report ought
to be made by every citizen of the
Mrs. Mary B. Evans is encouraged
in the support which is being given
her in the matter of providing a rest
room in the old court house for the
ladies of the county. She has a great
deal of energy, and she means to carry
through this progressive movement.
In this work she rightly deservres the
support which is being given her by
the county and city authorities, and
she ought to have the active co-opera
tion of all the business men of New
Now if Mr. Felder could have only

It .is perhaps just as well that Mr.
Felder's pressing engagements pre

Felder's delicately 'balanced and sen

It is not without the range of possi
bility that we will at some time have a
legislature which, without a referen
dum, will provide for a system of per
manent road work. It will cost some
money to build permanent roads-and
the howl will be long and dismal and
blood-curdling. It is not unlikley that
the men who put through such a
measure would be snowed under in a
succeeding election, if the election
came soon after the enactment of the
measure. But when the roads were
used, and the advantages, in conven
ience and in dollars and cents, were
realized, the authors of the measure
would be heroes, and some of those
who kicked loudest against spending
some money for permanent road work,
instead of throwing it away in patch
work, would be proclaiming loudly
how they bad told the people all the
time that permanent work was what
was needed, and while it would take
money to do it, it would 'be the best in

Return of "The Clansman."
After an absence of three years from
this section, the famous Thomas Dix
On success, "The Clansman," has been
given an elaborate revival for a tour
of the South this season.
News to this effect has just been
ascertained from Manager Scurry, of
the opera house, who states that he
has completed arrangements with
George H. Brennan, manager of the
Southern Amusement company,' for an
engagement in this city on Saturday,
An entirely new scenic production
has been provided for the big revival,
and the forthcoming performance here
will be an occasion of unusual import
ance in theatrical circies. "The Clans
man" is too well known in this city
to necessitate lengthy comment. Suf
fice it to say that the coming revival
will .be the seventh year of unpreced
ented success which the great South
ern drama has enjoyed. Few plays
can boast of such a racord. "The
Clansman" is one of the plays of
Southern life that has won universal
success and popularity.
The part of Silas Lynch, thle color
ed lieutenant-gov'ernor in "The Clans
man," is one of the best villan roles
that has ever been written. It is rich
with possibilities and requires an ex
ceptionally capable actor for its inter
pretation. All of the former actors
who have played the part have said
that they have derived keen enjoyment
out of it. Mr. Paulson will appear as
Lynch In the coming production of
"The Millionaire Kid."
"The Millionaire Kid," the latest
play from the pen of the well known
writer, Lern B. Parker, deals with a
subject familiar to us all, namely: the
stock market and its various ramifica
tions and at the same time a subject
very little understood by the vast ma
jority and as such is consequently of
great interest to all. It throws a light
on the questionable side of stock mar
ket gambling, as conducted in a bucket
shop. The story -is a play of intense
interest and has been handled by the
author in truly a masterful way.
Throughout the action of the play a
score of catchy musical numbers are
rendered and are all of the kind that
make your mouth pucker up to the
whistling stage and refuse to leave
your mind. These same numbers are
emphasized by an exceptionally beau
1tiful and clever chorus. Mr. Parker
has the happy faculty of mingling
music in a drama without detracting
from the action of the piece itself.
2The mounting of the play is up to
-the usual Kilroy-Britton standard
which is "excellent." Raymond Paine,
the clever young singer and dancer,
